S1E9 - Creating a Philanthropic Database for Your Community

In Episode 9 of Giving & Gabbing, our co-hosts are joined by Jackie Downing, Director of Grant Marketing and Nonprofit Effectiveness at The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. Jackie and her team organize an annual Giving Day, The Great Give®, and just celebrated their 11th event that raised $3,633,911 for 398 organizations in May of 2020. To further their nonprofits' impact on the New Haven community, the Community Foundation recently launched giveGreater.org®, an online database of local organizations, powered by GiveGab's Philanthropy Hub. Throughout this episode, Jackie takes a deep dive into the importance of creating a centralized place for donors to learn more, connect, and give back to nonprofits serving their community.
